Sputnik vs Gomel
Belarus – First League
Date: Sunday, 17 May 2020
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Central Stadium (Rechitsa)
Sputnik has hit a purple patch at the start of this season. They are currently in second place and are equal on points with Lokomotiv Gomel who are at the top. But the team from Rechitsa has to improve big time in all aspects of the game. They have found only 5 goals and conceded only once and are among the four teams who are unbeaten so far.
Sputnik has a 3 match win streak active at the moment. Apart from Smorgon, they are yet to face some strong sides in the competition. But against a struggling Gomel, they may have the upper hand considering their current form.
Gomel’s season so far has been the stark exact opposite of their upcoming rivals. They are on a 3 match winless run which includes 2 draws and a loss. Gomel has conceded more goals than what they scored and needs to keep their heads clear to get into the top ten spots. This kind of form was not expected from the club which was relegated from the Premier League last season.
They stand 12th in the table with -3 points because of the federation decision. Draws will not help them in the present scenario and defeats will make it even tougher to survive in the league.
Sputnik vs Gomel: Head-to-head (h2h)
- This will be the first time these two sides will meet in a competitive fixture.
Sputnik vs Gomel: Prediction
These two sides are on the two extremes of the points table. The season so far has been phenomenal for the hosts. With the three-game winning-run going on it is hard to write them off. On the other hand, they have never face Gomel before. The inexperience may play a part in this upcoming matchup. So I am backing a double chance for Sputnik winning or the match ending as a draw.
Gomel has a strong attacking unit as they have proved in the match against Lokomotiv Gomel. Even though those goals were not enough getting 2 goals tells us a lot about their mentality. So even though the hosts have the best defense in the league I think we may see both teams getting goals on Sunday.
